I'm stuck using this book in my Plant Propagation class. I'm appalled by the price - and for a paperback book. I really hate having to do that to my students. I'm hoping they've cleaned up the text since the 7th edition. In the 7th edition I found repeated text. The book was obviously edited and reedited and in the process text was duplicated. I felt like I was reading in circles. The book is a bit over the top for undergraduate studies. I'm using it for community college work.

I started using this book during my undergrad and as a grad student I keep on using it. It is a great reference for new professionals, as of writing this I am still working on my M.S. in Agronomy&Horticulture and I find that I most frequently reference back to this book when I need to get accurate and concise information. It does cost a lot as others have mentioned, and for a hobbyist I think it would be way too much. But for my situation I find it to be invaluable.

A great book for someone who is looking for an up to date information about propagation methods . Very informative, with lot's of diagrams, pictures etc. One can tell that the authors did a very serious work in this book,and I think it's a must have for every one who is interested in propgating plants. The only thing I would have changed is to make it a hard cover instead of paperback

The book is still the gold standard for propagation; an excellent reference and working guide.

The only concern is the durability of the book itself the cover isn't as tough as I would like - getting a good quality plastic sleeve on it would be good.

I first ran into this some 30 years ago when I bought the 3rd edition. It turned out to be quite valuable to me as I used it to generate plants and shrubs for my garden at little to no cost. As my career matured and I had children my time for gardening decreased.

Recently I retired and started taking up gardening more seriously again, and decided to see what was available on this topic. I was amazed to see this now in the 8th edition.

Yes it's not cheap. It wasn't cheap 30 years ago either. But it is well worth the price if you are in to what it covers.

I have had a lot of use out of this book but since it is mostly a textbook it can be very boring when you read it. It does not have a ton of informaiton about specific plants that you can propagate, but it does detail the science behind it.
